Carved Surfaces

Acrylic, polystyrene on board


For a few years I experimented with using a razor blade as a drawing tool. After cutting into a polystyrene surface, I painted the surface to give an overall look of rock formations or a carved wooden surface. The shifting planes in "Rockledge" create a tension by implying that glacier shifts form striations in the surface rock.
